Please take 1-2 minutes to contact Senator Atkins.

AB5 Background

AB 5 proposes to enshrine the Dynamex decision in State law, changing the rules governing what determines an independent contractors status, effectively eliminating the owner operator model.

91.8% of all trucking companies in California operated five or fewer trucks in 2017.  It is these small business truckers who will be most directly impacted by AB 5.
